Research / Research AreasBiomaterials and Regenerative Medicine
The focus of research in biomaterials lies in the understanding of the interactions of biomolecules and cells with materials. Experimental and theoretical approaches are being used to understand the properties of existing materials and to develop new materials for a variety of biomedical applications.
Researchers are performing detailed studies of interfacial interactions between biomolecules and cells, and designing novel surface modifications to control these interactions in diagnostic systems, medical devices, and other areas.
Research in this area includes:
- Modern chemical sciences
- Molecular and cellular biology
- Materials development for micro and nano-particles
- Controlled release systems
- Tissue repair and regeneration
